Texas Bound Hazelle has been living in the Grace Home, an orphanage in New York City, for almost a year. Now she and several other children have been put on a train headed for Texas, where they will be placed with families that want children. But Hazelle isn't an orphan, and her new home isn't what she expected. Will Hazelle find a place where she belongs? Hazelle Boxberg was a real eleven-year-old girl who traveled to Texas on an orphan train in 1918. Her story is as exciting as any novel.
To research her various books and magazine articles, Susan E. Goodman has snowshoed through mountain forests, tried using a blowgun in the Amazon, and scared a moose at rest -- and herself in the bargain. Years ago, she went to U.S. Space Camp as a participant and loved the 1/6 Gravity Chair. Ms. Goodman lives with her family in Boston, Massachusetts.
